A caregivers advocate for a Toronto support group for immigrant caregivers has come forward and stated that Ruby Dhalla is a liar:
“This is one of those occasions when I wish the childhood story of Pinocchio was true,” said Agatha Mason, the executive director of Intercede, a Toronto support group for immigrant caregivers.
On Tuesday, Dhalla said her brother, Neil Dhalla, employed and supervised the women and she told the committee that when Mason called her at her Ottawa office, she redirected the call to her brother.
“In fact, it was the opposite,” Mason told the House of Commons immigration committee Thursday. “I had a conversation with her brother and I was directed to her.”
Mason testified her later phone conversation with Dhalla to retrieve personal documents of nanny Richelyn Tongson was unpleasant, The Globe and Mail reported.
“I gave her clear directions that she was breaking the law and she has 24 hours in which to return the documents. I remember that clearly,” Mason said. “And, as far as I remember, the documents were returned the following day.”
Tongson testified Tuesday Dhalla took her passport, birth certificate and marriage license and that she got the documents back only after the outside agency intervened.
I’m sure Ruby Dhalla will explain this away, saying all THREE caregivers are lying as well as the advocate for the caregivers rights group. I’m sure Ruby Dhalla will stick to her story that this is all a plot by the Conservatives to sully her good name. Because when it comes down to it, immigrants love Conservatives and will do most anything to fill the wishes of the great right-wing slam-machine™.
Liberal leader, Count Chocula, who says he stands by Ruby Dhalla and found her testimony *captivating*, and wouldn’t answer a question from a reporter as to whether he think s the caregivers are lying, would do well to drop Dhalla and move on. Ruby Dhalla is finished, her lies have come back and bitten her. If Count Chocula doesn’t denounce Ruby Dhalla immediately, he faces disenfranchising the massive liberal immigrant voting block. Haha, just kidding, Chocula can always count on the liberal immigrant crowd to deliver massive swaths of votes. Still though, Chocula should forget about being a liberal for a second and try to do the right thing.
